Hello guys,

Anyone have any experience ordering from Tourspec to the UK?  Any additional costs via tax/customs etc?  Had read there are possible issues with fake clubs from here but admittedly I know virtually nothing about this website.  

Appreciate any help :)

I wanted Japan spec forged clubs and was very worried about buying direct. I went to a supplier and fitter here in the UK.
I had no worries for authenticity and ended up with fantastic clubs that were cheaper than similar from American Golf (i.e. Callaway X forged or Titleist forged).

Tour Spec Golf is a reputable dealer.  I have purchased thousands of dollars in Irons, Shafts and heads from Chris & Jacque.

         I'm in the USA so I can't speak to your other questions but the products they sold me are genuine.  I will say the email only communication is a bit odd but
the service I received has always be fantastic.  

I hope this helps

What supplier did you use in the UK out of curiosity?

And thanks for your help so far fellas 😁

I’ve order numerous putters, wedges and irons from Chris when living in the US.  Now in the UK and hit with customs tax last year on a putter of about 50.

Products are legit.  You will most likely be hit with heavy shipping costs, so maybe negotiate that.

Ive ordered stuff from Chris too. Irons and graphite shafts. He is legit no worries . Ships fast. Also the best time to buy is during the Christmas holidays when you get 20% off your order

i havent ordered from tour spec but i do order from rakuten.

thwe import VAT charges are 20% of total cost including shipping, then you get hit with Customs fee then clearance fee.

I paid £174 total on a set of irons that cost £744 inc shipping.

So total cost for 4-pw was £918

I've ordered a few things from Tourspec.  I dealt with Chris directly.  Never had a problem.

Be happy to. Haven't booked yet but probably will be fixing it up in a months time.
Lets hope our teams (Bfd & Mfc) make the playoffs
